Right now, in Europe, there is a machine called the Large Hadron Collider, which many people believe has the potential to destroy the earth by sucking it into a black hole. This show is just slightly worse than that.
Yeah, it’s funny to watch people get hit by a big foam wall, but even watching old people fall on their nuts on America’s Funniest Videos got tiresome after a while. The main problem with this show is that the rules don’t seem to make any sense. You can do a certain amount of damage to the wall, but the actual amount seems to be arbitrary. Plus, some of the shapes are just impossible. Yeah, it increases the chances that the people will fall down and get a collective laugh from drunk people across the country, but it would be nice to see them actually make it from time to time.
Ultimately, I can’t understand how people are going to sit through a full fucking hour of this when it moves to its regular time. With any luck, next season Fox will adapt, Ow, My Balls, the fictional show that entertained the very stupid people in Idiocracy.
